Sticking to the Healthy Eating Plan

Ha! I love the days—usually after a season of overindulgence—the day when I open the fridge and am met with an awful stench.

I put my sniffer to work, starting at the top shelf, working my way down.

It’s obviously the dead deer meat my husband is so crazy about…..

No—I move down to the next shelf, and the next.

Has the cheese we had with crackers on New Year’s Eve gone bad?


Then there it is. The drawer full of all the neglected healthy food.

The rotting squash, lettuce, celery, carrots, green peppers, and something that has liquefied all over the bottom of the healthy food drawer.

That was it!

The sniffer wins again. Now I have to fill the drawer all over.

I'll come back to this when I find out who I really am. I've been through some extremely rough patches but they have made me a better person. I blog if my brain is functioning first thing in the morning.

    I have the same problem with my fridge. The good food just doesn’t stay fresh enough until I feel like eating it!!
    You’d think they would make a fridge that would deal with this issue.

  2. Love this, it is so true, happens all the time in our house too……x

    Ah, the famous vegetable drawers. Although most the food gets eaten from those drawers, it’s also the first place the food goes bad. Why does old bagged salad get juicy? That’s my question. It’s gross, leaks out and makes a mess.

    I found rotten eggs in my cupboard. That was BAD!

    Why is it that we can’t really abide with our plans to get healthier? We buy all this lovely food that is going to help keep us well, and then we neglect to eat it, letting it rot. We, as humans, are really quite stupid at times.

  6. This happens to us all the time. I know part of the problem is with things like cilantro and parsley. We only need like a tablespoon or two for a recipe, but you have to practically buy a whole bushel of the stuff. And I currently have a couple of apples going bad on the counter. I keep bypassing them for cookies leftover from Christmas πŸ™‚

      I have found smaller packages of some types of herbs, but cilantro and parsley are not two of them. It frustrates me. My neighbor told me I could dry them, but that would be just too much work.
